SIGNS and SIGN ORDINANCES
If there are mistakes here  please let us know so we can correct anything that needs correcting.

WHERE AND HOW MAY SIGNS BE PLACED IN THE TOWNSHIP ?  

Chapter 108. NUISANCES....   http://www.ecode360.com/9007279?highlight=sign,yard#9007279

G. To nail, tack, hang or otherwise append any sign, notice or advertisement of any kind whatsoever
                    on any tree, post or pole of any description within the township, except on private property
                    and then only by permission of the owner.

        

Chapter 115 Parks Playgrounds and School District  Grounds    http://www.ecode360.com/9007338 
Chapter 115. A 20 "No placard, advertisement, public notice or personal

                          card except park and playground notices, rules and regulations

                          shall be distributed, posted or affixed in any manner

                          in a park or playground." So it's prohibited by default.

 Chapter 115. B  16 says: No placards, advertisements, public notices or

                          personal cards shall be distributed, posted or  affixed

                          to buildings or appurtenances on school district grounds.

Abington Township, with John Spiegelman in charge, revamped the entire Township website at the end of 2015 and broke all the links to the information we had archived on this site for you.   In 2017, Manager Richard Manfredi arrived and assigned someone not qualified to redo the entire website again. They not only broke all archived links we had reinstated, but made everything as impossible to find as they could. Nearly all of our comments and recommedations to fix the Township website have been wholly ignored.

So we do need volunteers to work together helping the Township create a site that is functional and accessible.  We will be reinstating links as we find them....if the data is still available. So... please let us know if you find a broken link. Send us the URL of the link  and the name of the page it is on, and if we can, we'll reinstate it.
Thanks for the help.
